Just recently I have started feeling really bitter. And I also feel very guilty about it. I've given up a very professional job to look after my MIL full time. She is becoming impossible to deal with. Our life has been put on hold and sometimes this feels like a life sentence. I guess I mostly feel this way because I'm the daughter-in-law. She's not my mother and my mother passed away a year and a half ago and I'm still dealing with the grief from that. I sound so selfish...but isn't this just the natural process of trying to accept this responsibility. I'm also trying to accept that it's the disease making life difficult, not my MIL. She wouldn't wish this on anyone. What a cruel disease this is. Please tell me that there are others who feel the same way.
